I know this is way off topic, but oh well
As a software developer I make a nice living, I have a nice house, own a nice car, have money in the bank, I really don't have too many wants. But I now know I made the wrong career choice. Today it was announced that Alex Rodriguez is going to re-sign with the New York Yankees for a reported 280 million over 10 years (info here).
Anyone that knows me knows I am a huge baseball fan. I am I pretty sure I could have played pro baseball, if it were not for the height issue (5' 8''), lack of the ability to throw a fastball over 80mph, or that I am not big or strong enough to hit a baseball out of the park. But aside from that, I could have made it. Hey look at Marcus Giles, he made it (btw, I am actually a huge MG fan).
But really, are pro athletes really worth 28 million dollars a season....? Guess so. Oh well, maybe in the next life I will make better career choices. Or, there is always the kid, maybe he can make me my millions. :)
Till next time,
